Anyone have a great mjadra recipe?

Just finished eating some mjadra from a local Vancouver cafe (nuba) which was fantastic!

Now since it is extremely healthy and basically contains lentils, onions, spices and oil I would really like to make a batch myself.

The thing is, I suspect that a bad recipe could be extremely dull. Anyone have a good mjadra authentic recipe?

  1. I'm pretty sure that the NYT had a recipe for Mujadara (i think that's how they spelled it) in the last two weeks. Give their recipe archive a shot.

    1. Desert candy usually has good iterations of Levantine dishes:

      1. Use this recipe as a base and incorporate your own spices. I have had great results when I throw in cardamom( black, not green) and cumin/coriander powders. Also, I prefer to use ghee instead of olive oil...

        1. re: vaparna

          I have used and enjoyed this recipe. I think that the key is to really brown your onions well.

        2. try the youtube recipe by mimicooks maybe.
